Breaking News: Super L/M Tire Rule for Sunday May 24th Will Be RR LM30 OR LM40 ONLY. LM20,LM30 or LM40 On Other Three Corners
Spoon River Speedway will offer two great nights of racing this Saturday and Sunday Nights, May 23rd and 24th.
First up on Saturday Night May 23rd it will be the fourth annual Randy Test Memorial featuring the Zane Automotive Service UMP Modifieds running for $1000 to Win. The Farmington Locker UMP Pro Modifieds will be running for $325 to Win. Also on hand will be the Perkins Seed House UMP Pro L/M's, the Fulton Farm Service UMP Hornets and the Spoon 6-Shooters.
Veteran UMP Modified hot shoe Butch Weisser is known at Spoon River Speedway for his mastery of driving the low line on a dry slick track, but on a night when the high side was the best side, the elder Weisser schooled the field, moving up to the top side and becoming “Butch On The Berm” for a 20-lap feature win at The Spoon.
“I knew the top was going to be good,”, said Weisser in the Perkins Seed House Victory Lane, “this car works well on both the top or bottom, tonight was just a night we had to take it to the top.”
Take it to the top he did for almost all of the 20-lap event, moving down to protect his lead on only a couple of occasions, the last one after Mike Chasteen, Jr., flying after near disaster early in the race, was able to show Weisser his nose on the inside coming out of turn two late in the race. Weisser moved low to protect in turn 3, the drivers gave each other room to race, and Weisser was able to hold off the hard-charging Chasteen.
